Ailing Cardinal Sin succeeded as archbishop of Manila

MANILA Outspoken Cardinal Jaime Sin, 75, was succeeded Friday as head of the dominant Roman Catholic Church in the Philippines but bowed to continue to speak out on matters that concern the country's political affairs.

"I will keep speaking to you to guide you and help you," Sin said at the formal turnover rites installing his successor Gaudencio Rosales as the new archbishop of Manila. (Kyodo News)
